My question involves court procedures for the state of: CALIFORNIA. I am new to litigation and have two quick questions regarding a proposed form of judgment. My client is the plaintiff who is the prevailing party in a breach of contract matter. The court ordered plaintiff to submit a proposed form of judgment. Can I use Judicial Form 100 for this, entitled "judgment" or must I produce this as a pleading?
Also, do I include attorney fees and costs in the order? Since the motion for attorney fees hasn't yet occurred, I would think this to be premature and not part of the order since the court has yet to rule on them. However, Judicial Form 100 does provide a place to include attorney fees and costs which is confusing me. I believe that's only to be completed if the court's tentative order included a decision on the fees and costs which is not the case here. I just want to be sure.
